    i have a 100d model x. Has 2.0 hardware footprint. Simply put, why doesn’t tesla use all the cameras in support of L2 autonomy?

    Sensory overload?

    You've got to hire people to deal with more work.

    Because the software isn't ready yet.

    Knew that, it it begs question why they would roll out features like summon and others that could benefit from multiple camera angles. Tesla shouldn’t try to roll out features in beta unless they can fully utilize the needed hardware!

    Because if you feed all that data into unfinished software, it's a lot harder to perfect the software. It's a lot easier to optimize and fix bugs when it's behaviour is based on one camera (ie the car did something unexpected, what camera input is the reason?).

    So the reason for this is software engineering technical.
